Anne Huynh July 23, 2008 Vinh Dang Ben Lee Tania Gomez Simple Harmonic Motion Purpose: The purpose of this lab is to study the dependence of the period of oscillation of a spring-mass system on the mass and the spring constant. Hooke’s Law for a spring states that the magnitude of the applied force exerted by a spring is related to the extension by the equation. Hooke’s aw of elasticity is an approximation that states that the amount by which a material body is deformed is linearly related to the force causing the deformation. Summary: Vibrating Mass (kg) 0.05 1 0.15 2 0.25 % Error using T1 32 23.3 12.6 8.1 6.1 % Error using T2 7.75 0.35 3.28 4.04 3.78 There were two parts to this lab. The first pat of the lab required us to record the location of the bottom of the spring relative to the scale on the meter stick. Then we hang the mass hanger from the spring and record the position of the bottom of the hanger. We added 50g mass to the hanger and recorded the final position.50g masses were added four times. For the second part, we used a
